Kidult Exstinctor Sculpture Misery Edition

The Exstinctor propaganda project aims solely at destroying the notion of commodity.
Just like graffiti, my work is public, and not private. NoGalleryNoMaster was created so that we can choose and select how my work is sold and distributed, in accordance with very specific criteria.
We will refuse any sale or collaboration involving galleries, institutions or any other for-profit artistic entities, which enables me to keep unrestrained artistic vision, independence and freedom.”

Yes Men

This is not a recent project, but we never posted it and it totally deserves to be here!
Ladies and Gentleman… The Yes Men and Gilda, the Golden Skeleton:

“On April 28, 2005, at a London banking conference to which they had accidentally been invited because of their satirical website, “Dow representative” “Erastus Hamm” unveiled“Acceptable Risk,” a Dow industry standard for determining how many deaths are acceptable when achieving large profits. The bankers enthusiastically applauded the lecture, which described several industrial crimes, including IBM’s sale of technology to the Nazis for use in identifying Jews, as “golden skeletons” – i.e. skeletons in the closet, but lucrative and therefore acceptable ones.”
